AJR Posted June 18, 2014 Share Posted June 18, 2014 I noticed an odditiy with a spamvertised site which Spamcop can't seem to track (I know reporting the sites is a "nice extra" to the core purpose of reporting the senders), as it can't resolve the domain: Tracking link: ht tp://promomail.com.mt/login/surveys.php?id=1 No recent reports, no history available Host promomail.com.mt (checking ip) IP not found ; promomail.com.mt discarded as fake. promomail.com.mt is not a routeable IP address Cannot resolve ht tp://promomail.com.mt/login/surveys.php?id=1 But when I test from my desktop, DNS lookups for the domain work fine: $ dig any promomail.com.mt ; <<>> DiG 9.8.1-P1 <<>> any promomail.com.mt ;; global options: +cmd ;; Got answer: ;; ->>HEADER<<- opcode: QUERY, status: NOERROR, id: 20268 ;; flags: qr rd ra; QUERY: 1, ANSWER: 6, AUTHORITY: 2, ADDITIONAL: 3 ;; QUESTION SECTION: ;promomail.com.mt.

Someone blocking lookups from Spamcop, perhaps?
